EU project 'Urban Water Footprint'
Urban Water Footprint
Nine European organizations from five European countries have just started in 2012 to collaborate on the project URBAN_WFTP - "Introduction of Water Footprint (WFTP) approach in urban area to monitor, evaluate and improve the water use".
This CENTRAL EUROPE project, to be completed by the end of 2014, focuses on local water management in urban areas in order to improve currently used technologies and to integrate innovative tools for monitoring and managing citizens' water use, water networks and wastewater treatment systems. To achieve these goals the Water Footprint approach represents an opportunity for better water management and use of water.
